Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"

The 5th Avenue candy bar was my favorite because it also had two almond quarters across the top; this was a treat within it self. I would eat the nuts first then the candy bar. I would get mad if the nuts were crooked on top or if it was missing a nut. Sometimes I would allow the chocolate to melt and then I could slide the nut off easily. I would also lick the melted chocolate off the candy bar. Dissembling this bar was a good and taste thing to do. I would make it a project. ~ Debra from New Jersey
My mother reaches in her pocket and reads "Fifth Avenue", but it is not her usual candy bar, instead inside this wrapper is a box and in opening the box there was a ring and my dad asked my mother to marry him. My dad explained he wanted my mom to remember that day, so he associated the candy bar with the street where he proposed.
My dad still gives my mother a Fifth Avenue every year for their anniversary, so she knows he remembers and loves that day and so that she can remember the moment, too. ~ Annie from Ohio
